This page features a mouth-watering Recipe from the state of Mississippi. Enjoy this Mississippi Mud Pie with Pecans and Marshmallow Creme.

Mississippi has about a hundred pecan groves located throughout the state.

There's nothing quite like the taste of pecans picked fresh from the grove. Fresh pecans are softer textured and have a richer, more buttery flavor than the store bought varieties most of us are accustomed to. 

The best time to eat pecans is harvest time, which is November through January, when the crops are plentiful, the quality is at its best, and the prices are low. 

Pecans are very high in protein and low in saturated fats, although not all pecan recipes are classified as health food.

  • 1 cup butter or margarine (softened)
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup pecans

  2. Cream flour, sugar and eggs until smooth.
  3. Mix butter and cocoa until completely blended.
  4. Add to flour mixture.
  5. Stir in coconut and nuts. Blend thoroughly. Mixture will be the consistency of brownie mix.
  6. Pour into greased pan and bake for 30 minutes.
